If you accept the premise of the series, this new season is a real ripsnorter.

I'm hoping that what I've seen in the season four premiere means the show is returning to its thematic home territory.

If the start of the season feels formulaic, it's a formula that's worked in the past, and one that gives very good material to key members of the ensemble.

Tuesday's season premiere resets the story in a way that should be satisfying to long-time fans while introducing a new, wily adversary for the club in the form of a motorcycle riding assistant U.S. attorney.

The fourth starts out a little slowly, as though it's taking a deep and much-needed breath after the third's wildly operatic conclusion. But the pace quickens soon enough. Anarchists will be hooked.

In order to fully appreciate SOA, viewers have to buy into Sutter's premise that murderers can be sympathetic and heroic, but that's not hard to do with such intelligent writing and so many mesmerizing performances.

Audience Reviews for Sons of Anarchy: Season 4

½

This is a much quieter season than the ones before, but much more drama heavy and I loved it for it. Finally things are crumbling all around the MC, greed takes over the Presiden't chair and the consequences are huge. Despite having a lot of explosive action sequences and a very present threat, it's the most subtle and well-thought season so far. However, the ending was a huuuuuuge cop-out. I can't help but feel the next couple of seasons are gonna drag on forever.
